LATTAvino is patchwork quilt network of vines owned by friends from Western Zone Victoria and Macedon Ranges off various sites, soil types and climates.
Owen Latta (of Eastern Peake) has been involved in wine all his life, at the age of 15 it was a jump straight in the deep end during vintage when his father Norman got severe concussion and Owen had to complete the vintage while balancing school. In 2012 it was time to start playing with new varieties from the surrounding region in 2015 LATTAvino was launched.
All wines are made with no additions in the winemaking; concrete open fermenters, indigenous yeasts, long maceration, neutral oak, skin/lees contact, long maturation, unforced naturally occurring malolactic fermentation. Un-fined, unfiltered and un-tinkered. (Some wines get small sulphur additions post malolactic fermentation).
